OK, so I know you are all wondering what happened to week 14. Well, it just was not very newsworthy as weeks go, so I didn’t want to bore you with a bunch of filler material. But now we have just finished week 15 and there are things to show you and talk about…
The lower roof was completely covered with zinc and made ready for the plastic tile.
You will also notice that the walls on the second floor have been filled in with the white Styrofoam Panacor panels.
The upper roof framing was completed and the zinc panels were started to be put down.
Soon the crew will start the process of putting the concrete layer (Repello, in Spanish) on the walls to create the finished look. They use a pumping machine, called a Putzmeister, to spray the mixture onto the walls, making the process much faster than doing it by hand. The concrete is then smoothed out over the wall.
To make sure the Putzmeister was working as it should, the guys fired it up and did a small area in the master bathroom.
